Girls on the Run 5K
The Girls on the Run 5K is an inspiring event for the Atlanta community that celebrates health, wellness and girl power! Girls on the Run inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident by using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running. Girls on the Run envisions a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
The day starts with registration and the opening of the expo. A one mile alumni run is the first race to kick off, followed by the 5K run. With the race being held at Atlanta's Turner Field, a limited number of partcipants will be allowed to run the bases after the race, but space is limited, so early registration is required.
The course route for the Girls on the Run 5K will take runners around Turner Field and through the surrounding neighborhoods. The course will be run on the streets in the area, so runners don't need to worry about hitting any trails or going off road. The race will begin and end at Turner Field.
